Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, has said that the joint conferring of this year`s Nobel Peace Prize on Indian Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistani teen Malala Yousafzai can help resolve the border conflict between the two neighbours.
The Nobel Peace Prize to child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi may have put the spotlight on the issue of child labour, but his NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan says Delhi government is not serious about dealing with the "menace", unlike many other states.
A week after Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for championing the cause of children, a UN General Assembly (UNGA) committee approved a draft resolution strongly condemning violence against children and calling on countries to protect them.
President Pranab Mukherjee praised the Nobel committee for choosing India's Kailash Satyarthi for this year's Peace Prize but declined to comment if the joint conferment of the award on Pakistan's Malala Yousufzai was possibly intended to help find a solution to the long-lasting tension between the two countries.
President Pranab Mukherjee has refrained from commenting on Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai inviting the prime ministers of India and Pakistan to the award ceremony even as he lauded her "courage and indomitable spirit".
Even being a Nobel laureate does not spare you the fear of examinations! Taliban may have threatened the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner - Malala Yousafzai - with 'sharp, shiny knives', but all this teen Pakistani activist worries is about her upcoming school examinations.
